Where I serve

I am serving at Oklahoma State!

My Story

I grew up in Bloomington, Indiana (Go Hoosiers) and went to college at Indiana University. I graduated in May 2020 with a degree in Leadership & Nonprofit Management. In high-school I started playing golf and running competitively. In college I raced as an amateur cyclist, but my original love is for running. I also love helping out with Awakening retreats, I have a soft spot for them! Probably one of my favorite items on this earth is my beloved mom van named Luanne. She is a 2003 light blue Dodge Caravan that carried many memories through out college. When I'm not driving my van around, I also love anything outdoors and enjoy eating gluten & dairy (two things of which I should not have...) 

I've wanted to be a missionary ever since I was Sophomore in college. I met one of the Indiana University missionaries and fell in love with what they did. The missionaries were trying to imitate Christ, while bringing other students with them. And I was all in. It was a matter of time before I began to reorient my life so that I could be like the missionaries who were, themselves, trying to be like Christ. Within the next few years, I started leading a bible study and leading a discipleship group. I loved every moment of it and was fully convicted to become a missionary myself to share the Gospel with students full time. 

Your Impact

When I answered the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help me through this mission.

If you are interested in partnering with me, please let me know of the best way to reach you and I will schedule an appointment. I'd be honored to share this mission with you.
